Police investigate baby's death in Camden County

- CAMDEN COUNTY, NJ (WTXF) - Police are investigating the death of a baby inside a Camden County home.

Neighbors on Marcia Court in Sicklerville came home Thursday afternoon to find a large crime scene investigation, which was all focused in on one house in particular after an 18-month old boy was found dead.

The mother reportedly woke up and found the baby unresponsive. The child was unresponsive on the lawn when officers arrived and attempted to revive him.  It's unclear how the child died.

Neighbors say the mother has two other kids and lives with a man and they all seem like a loving family. Neither the other children or the mother’s boyfriend were home at the time the baby was found.

"By all accounts, they seem to be very devoted. They were always going on trips with the kids. They would all pile in the back and go for the day," neighbor Mark Nerone said.

The investigation is ongoing and the results of an autopsy are pending.
